    It's been pushed to the backburner lately. But it's not completely empty!

    Nice Sarge, I'm just a mutt period :p

    @Tim Battershell a couple pages back asked about the longer breadth hilt and use. I find that I tend to grip with the dominent hand near the emitter and the second hand on the pommel, comes from taking a couple fencing classes I suppose and may not be the norm. I find this helps in that a shift in the off hand can aid in the faster angle alteration and put more power behind the action. Also one can release to single handed and the pomel offsets the blade weight (obviously my lightsaber DRL blade has weight to offset), although without the blade in to simulate a more true to theory lightsaber (ie I imagine the blade is there) I swap grip to the middle when using a single hand for better weight distribution and control, this also leads to a more 'club' mentality that has to be contended with as it feels less like a foil and more like a basher stick, an odd tendancy to combat in a duel but workable. When adding my off hand to the pomel with the main in the middle grip I find that it worsens the club mentality and leads to limited angle mobility of the blade, but harsher 'Darth Vader' beat down type strikes. Feeling awkward I tend to switch back to the foregrip and possibly reposition the rear grip to the middle, feels weird, but I have not tried enough to be able to give a good account of the mechanics in any depth. I have also tried the blade with merely a rear hand grip position and found it more interesting and that one is more likely to loose one's grip in a duel from torque stressors then if gripped in the middle or fore positions. Obviously with a rear grip off hand is not involved as adding it merely would alter the dominant hand on the saber, even if one does not adjust stance to compensate. With the fore and middle positions one can twist so that the pomel if not in the off-hand can be pushed into a forearm and help prevent the bashing of the weapon away from ones grip. This is from personal experience with my own roughly three hand breadth saber (barely fits in a size 13 shoe box length wise), and I am able to use either hand as a dominent for most tasks (all if penmenship isn't factored in :p )

    Also, Happy Easter GoL!

    Okey, I maybe say it for the tenth time, but tenth time is better than none, right?

    So, happy Easter master @Tim Battershell
    And happy Easter GoL!

    Enjoy our last easter day for this year. ;)

    Chewbie o_O you don't want to upset Addie now do you?

    Mitthy, I find when I hold a hammer or saw, it's always with my dominent hand. Maybe it's not so strange afterall...
